Plot: A young woman travels to Texas to collect an inheritance; little does she know that an encounter with a chainsaw-wielding killer is part of the reward.

Review:Texas Chainsaw 3D is a movie that does exactly what it says on the tin; it isn’t remotely scary but it does have a rather awesome chainsaw fight at the end with Leatherface and an evil redneck.

The thing is about this Texas movie is the fact that you’ll be rooting for the killer, literally. They actually managed to make Leatherface threatening but also kinda sympathetic at the same time. It is a little slow at the beginning and you won’t give a damn about any of the characters but the final act makes it worth watching.

I like to consider myself a pretty sick guy and this movie had some quality gore in it. Behold a man literally chainsawed in half and wince as another guy gets his legs cut off. So yeah, it’s a romantic comedy as you can tell, but I had fun with it.

I liked how it feels like a genuine sequel to the Tobe Hooper original and also feels like something new too.

It’s a shame it lacks any scares or tension (like the Evil Dead Remake) which to me defeats the purpose of making a horror movie. I’ve never really found any of the Texas Chainsaw movies all that scary though, but I really enjoy them for what they are.

A special mention must be made for the ending of this movie, I really liked it and thought it was a ballsy way to go.

The acting is alright but nobody really stands out aside from the lovely Alexandra Daddario; it’s the usual bunch of twenty-somethings who are all going to die horribly but you know fine well who will survive.

Overall, if you aren’t a fan of watching people being cut in half (and who isn’t?) then you may want to give this one a miss but I would recommend checking it out at least once as it’s diverting entertainment.
